2018 reissue.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Bernard Purdie is one of the most well-known drummers of all time, and probably the most recorded in history. From his early days as a session player, Purdie rose to become Aretha Franklin's musical director, did overdubs for The Beatles, and recorded with the likes of Steely Dan, Cat Stevens, Joe Cocker, Hall & Oats, Quincy Jones, Roberta Flack, and James Brown, to name a few. In 1967, he entered a studio with several friends to cut his first solo album, Soul Drums.

The album was critically acclaimed upon it's initial release, only to reach mythical proportions once being rediscovered by DJs and hip-hop producers years later, when it became one of the most sought-after drum LPs among vinyl collectors. Soul Drums is now available on CD and vinyl for the first time in years, along with an entire bonus album comprising Purdie's long-lost follow-up LP Alexander's Rag Time Band, which was never given a proper release.
